Fourth of July Interdependence Retreat

This year we are celebrating our 11th interdependence silent retreat with a modified one and a half day event respecting the safety of participants in the age of coranavirus. Schedule includes silent meditation, dharma talks, experience in the natural world, and meeting with the teachers. On  Saturday, we will practice together from home beginning 8 AM and closing at 9 PM convening online at particular times throughout the day as we engage practice exercises between meetings. Sunday we will convene outdoors in person at the Empty Field Zendo from 8 AM – 11 AM for practices outdoors with nature including safe social distancing.

Come join us for this joint sangha experience as we explore the theme of our mutual interdependence that is expressed so vividly in nature.  Co-led by Seido Martin of Empty Field ~ Zen West, and Mushin Terris of the Sangha Jewel Zen Center in Corvallis.
